Best Places to Be a Mom

Album: Taking Back Sunday (2010)
  • Thought a lot about the morning after
    And there's some things I need to get off of my chest
    Forget the preconceptions
    We both surely have
    Like what if the grass is always greener
    Well, today should taste much sweeter
    I don't wanna talk,
    (I don't wanna talk)
    I don't wanna talk,
    (I don't wanna talk)
    Peel back your skin,
    Invite me in.

    Am I just like the rest of them?
    (The rest of them)
    The sum of my father and all his sins
    I didn't need an answer when
    You said it all
    Say nothing at all
    You said it all
    Say nothing at all

    And I see it so much clearer
    Through the smoke and past the mirrors
    Past the bright brutality
    Of the people we have been
    But you didn't need that explanation
    And no I had no expectations
    I don't wanna talk
    I don't wanna talk
    Peel back your skin
    Invite me in

    Am I just like the rest of them?
    (The rest of them)
    The sum of my father and all his sins
    I didn't need an answer when
    You said it all
    Say nothing at all
    You said it all

    Waiting for us in suspense
    No hope at the foot of my bed
    I don't wanna talk
    Don't wanna talk
    Don't wanna talk
    Don't wanna talk
    I just wanna taste you

    Am I just like the rest of them?
    (The rest of them)
    The sum of my father and all his sins
    I didn't need an answer when
    You said it all
    Say nothing at all
    You said it all
    Say nothing at all

    You said it all
    Say nothing at all
    You said it all
    Say nothing at all Writer/s: ADAM LAZZARA, EDWARD REYES, JOHN NOLAN, MARK O'CONNELL, SHAUN COOPER
